1-take health insurance off the backs of employers,maybe then they could afford to pay a better wage and hire more fulltime workers.it costs an employer approximately 20% over the hourly wage for each employee.
2-in the case of welfare benefits,assess the need that family has and fulfill it for, let's say 2 years, the benefit should remain the same for that 2 years unless there is a change in family size or other conditions. let them earn money to improve their situation and let them keep it, instead of taking back their benefits and keeping them in the same, or worse situation.that is not really very encouraging to work. after 2 years reassess.
3-i love the idea of random drug testing for anyone receiving government benefits, be it welfare or a pay check.

How do we take health care off the backs of employers - who pays for it - do the doctors just work for free or should those that have worked thier tails off got an education and earn more than you pick up the tab?

You second point shows the true root of the problem no one has motivation to work - how long does this go on - if someone can sit on thier ass watch lifetime tv all day and smoke cigarettes why would they go to work - secondly - if you cant afford to feed youself or provide for yourself you have no business growing your family -

I agree on your last point - other than that you have failed miserably The US was founded on the principle of a free market - the supply and demand graphs can be applied to everything that you spend or earn money on - your wages are determined by the labor market and you skills versus others in the same market- the price of goods is determined the same way

Increasing taxes on the very wealthy helps the economy in several ways.
First, corporations reinvest their profits back into the company to avoid the higher tax rate. Second; with the investment back into the company comes growth and more jobs.
When people have more expendable income they spend more boosting the economy even more.
Raising taxes on the rich has worked in the past and will work again.
Clinton raised taxes on the rich and look back at the economy how it prospered.
Bush lowered taxes and the economy tanked.
Raise taxes again and watch the economy take off!

You are a sac of shit and neither you or your wife own a business.
Come on nobody here believes that BS about you being a "retired Military", your posts show that you are nothing but a welfare parasite, who is a taker and not a maker.

It would be a wonderful world if we all could just live without working however it can't work that way. The government is somewhat like our own bank account, we put money in and take money out. Taking more out than putting in won't work for long. The fact our government can print money is one reason things are going up because the money is getting worth less each time they they print more. As far as a "free market" America really doesn't have one, you see when the governemnt puts a subsidy on something it is no longer a free market, it gives an edge to the person receiving the subsidy and competition fails.

You need to google unemployment from 2000 to 2006 as well as the fed rate,they had raise the fed rate every quarter just to cool the ecomony,in 2006 the Democrats took over and then things tanked you need to know more about your politics before you blow your horn,but the lowering of taxes that Bush did caused the ecomony to rise greatly,the Bush tax rates being lowerd caused the ecomony to raise quickly,even Obama agreed with not cutting the Bush tax cuts 2 yrs ago,why because no one would invest,remmber back under Bush many ppl were buying new homes,under Obama the had to give them back to the lenders,Raise taxes and watch,ppl aren't going to borrow any money from banks easly unless they have the colateral to back it up,even now they want realestate,not money,because money can disapear quickley,especially with the cost of living rising 15% per year,but back to Bush the economy was good untill the Democrats took the house and senate,from that time on many ppl lost their jobs,homes,cars,etc.as i said google will help you understand politics.

Raising taxes on the rich has never worked,when Clinton went out of the presidentsy we were in a ression,that was the reason Bush cut tax rates and the ecomony took off,when Clinton left the state of Ark. we had to pass a soft drink tax,because he left us broke,you dont sound as though you are a young person,you must be a loser,a person your age crying like you are must be a poor manager,you should have some money at your age,why cant you make your own living,have you had medical problems,what is the reason you are wanting someone else to feed you,you are the very person putting out the retired military $hit which everyone knows is a lie,in fact i have heard some ppl related to you,or say they were related to you say,you were never in the military that you had bought new houses different time but would always try to live above ur means untill you would lose the new houses,they also said you were the local milk man at one time and did very well,but that you would just keep spending untill you would go broke,so stop blameing someone else for your personaly problems,live with your means.

no good sir YOU need to learn your politics before you open that whole in your face your so lucky to call a mouth... inflation was growing and jobs were failing .. the collapse was caused .. let me repeat this .. the collapse was caused... do to an unregulated wallstreet and banks, and the lowering of taxes when we had a surplus ineffectively reducing us to the red and ultamitly a deficit... obama did not raise tax rates 2 years ago because the economy was still fresh to the recession what sense would it make to raise taxes during a deep recession? and even then he wanted to raise rates on the rich but republicans tied deals to the debt ceiling and caused the president to come off the taxing of the rich and ultimatly led to the nations first downgrade caused by republicans in the house holding hostage middleclass tax cuts compared to rich or high income earners... yah i remember when people were buying new homes ... homes people could not afford.. banks lieing and manipulating people to get them into a home ... yah if that's the unregulated home growth your talking about i remember that .. and we fixed that moron... and no obama did not cause people to forclose on their homes.. people living beyond their means did ... banks do forclosures not the federal government.. and what taxes were raised? are you paying higher taxes? i think not... and theres a good reason you have to have collateral .. it's to protect the banks assests.. or ass.. however you want to say it because they are what caused a third of the collapse in the first place... and just where the hell are you living that cost of living is rising 15% a year? lol what a JOKE! you are full of nothing but lies!! and no before bush left the economy collapsed get it right and google that for your pie hole and shut it... bush did not have the backbone to show his face... every major credibal economist, journalist, specialist, independant researcher, and media source even agrees on this .. so where were you living the past decade?

The very wealthy dont pay taxes to start with they have hundreds of ppl hired just to make sure they dont,corp reinvestment does not mean they are going to hire more ppl,at least in this country there are many ways for them to invest money without hiring a person,infact they are going to hire less ppl,especially with health care they dont have to pay that in forgien countries,the tax on 250,000 will only raise taxes on ppl makeing much less,just go get your vehicle worked on and see if it wont cost you more because the parts co.will only raise the cost of parts,oil,tires,call someone to work on your home heating and air,the cost will go up,electric will go up,rent will go up,gas will go up,you aren't going to hurt the ppl that have money,they dont care,but it will create more uneployment,Obama knows its going to get to the little person more than the rich,but he cant tell you that,but only a fool would think you are going to hurt the wealthy,only the poor.He has gotten what he wanted,he bought an election now he could care less about you.
